Do words really have meaning?

I don’t know about you, but I personally LOVE to read old emails. You really get to find out how good someone’s word (Thanks to Merriam-Webster) is. Whether they are a hypocrite, it is so very fun. Does a person stand on principle or simply live life off the primeval desire for simple self-preservation?


Defined: 1 a: tending toward or exhibiting aggression <aggressive behavior> b: marked by combative readiness aggressive fighter> 2 a: marked by obtrusive energy b: marked by driving forceful energy or initiative : enterprising aggressive salesman> 3: strong or emphatic in effect or intent <aggressive colors> <aggressive flavors> 4: growing, developing, or spreading rapidly <aggressive bone tumors> 5: more severe, intensive, or comprehensive than usual especially in dosage or extent

So to sum up, it would be a word to describe a very strong or assertive manner of doing something.



Defined: 1: one that pleads the cause of another ; specifically : one that pleads the cause of another before a tribunal or judicial court 2: one that defends or maintains a cause or proposal 3: one that supports or promotes the interests of another

So to sum up, it would be a word only used by a person that was willing to stand by someone…much as a lawyer would stand by his/her client in order to support them.


One can only imagine how forceful it is when you “aggressively advocate” for someone. To do so must resemble a vocal fight to the death.


1 a (1): having the property of transmitting light without appreciable scattering so that bodies lying beyond are seen clearly : pellucid (2): allowing the passage of a specified form of radiation (as X-rays or ultraviolet light) b: fine or sheer enough to be seen through : diaphanous 2 a: free from pretense or deceit : frank b: easily detected or seen through : obvious c: readily understood d: characterized by visibility or accessibility of information especially concerning business practices

So to sum up, it would be a word used to insinuate that one would know the cause and process behind an action, NOT left to wonder what has transpired and why.
